“Transforming our world” was the tagline of the 2030 Agenda for the United Nation’s sustainable development goals. It remains an appropriate rallying cry for governments, the private sector, civil society, and most of the world’s citizens. Ultimately, the UN’s SDGs will be judged by how effectively they address the manifold challenges impacting the world today and threatening the world tomorrow.
The 4th CLMV Regional Conference focused on tracking the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) implementation progress in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam.
This event on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) entitled, “Sustainable Development Goals Delivery: Planning for Implementation” provided a platform for exchange and enable sharing experiences of national implementation challenges.
The regional conference took place on 26-27 March 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand and was co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) with the cooperation of the Ministry of Planning of Lao PDR back to back with the 5th Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD). It was hosted by the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).
This conference was the fourth regional event on the implementation of SDGs that have been jointly carried out by ASEF, HSF and the governments of CLMV countries since 2014, under the Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum).
The 2017 CLMV regional workshop took place in February 2017 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar. Materials from the event are available here.
